Tell me /m/, is Gasaraki worth watching? I am 4 episodes deep and while I am intrigued, I want to know if it's worth watching all the way through. I really enjoy the "realistic" approach it is taking, but I've heard mixed things about it

thoughts?

If you like what you see then go for it.

It's a great show but not one with mass appeal and the reasons why should be apparent already.

Its a hella lot of strange but nice. I dont know if id recommend it but keep at it if your already interested.

>>13718654
It is one of the better mecha shows I've seen. I found the way that they merged together the different elements of the plot worked really well.
>>
>>13718654
Don't expect a romance, I'll tell you that.
It's kinda a blend of political thriller and mecha
>>
I honestly thought the ending was the best part and totally worth having to sit through /k/-tier 'realistic' military bullshit.

It's strange but I enjoyed the politics and alien shit way more than the fights, which I found to be just as boring as watching a real life war.

It's a slow burner, that's for sure.

Pretty solid anime though.

If you like Takahashi's other works then you will definitely enjoy Gasaraki. The fact that you already enjoy the first 4 episodes is a good sign to continue. Like that other anon said the anime is a slow burner which turns most people off, but if you are already hooked then it only gets better form here.

but seriously its one of the best shows of all time for anyone who likes mecha/military/politics shows. it actually reminds me of deus ex in a lot of ways

I have autism because I think tanks and planes are boring to watch? I guess I'd rather have autism than be a brainless drone who enjoys that kind of shit.

>>13718654
God I need to watch this show. It used to air in 3rdworldia where I live but they would only air the episodes out of order and made no fucking sense. Thanks for reminding me it exists
>>
>>13718993
Well, they were going for a 'realistic' feel. It's a Takahashi show, but unlike VOTOMs, another Takahashi work that has mechs of similar size to the ones here, Gasaraki is grounded much more heavily in the Gulf War. So the battles in VOTOMs (a typical "galactic war" setting) were much more frenetic and fast-paced. You gotta admit the parts with the Kugai (the fantasy samurai mechs) were brutal, though. Those things did not fuck around.

Anyways OP, as I often say, I have a soft spot for Gasaraki, it being one of my earliest Takahashi shows. If you're 4 episodes in, I gotta warn you it does change heavily; the Gulf War thing eventually shades into JAPANESE POLITICS, GRAIN, and AYY LMAO. You may find that appealing, though, and there are some cool mech battles later on, so I would stick with it.

Gasaraki is great.
But I've got one warning.
Please. PLEASE. Do not watch the last episode.
Pretend the series ends at 24. It's a good cutoff point. Pretend there's no episode 25. It's a fucking spit in the face and makes SEED Destiny look like it has a good ending.

He has autism because he likes some things and not others? Definition of autism must have changed a lot recently.

It's not.
Someone on /m/ once recommended it for a VOTOM style romance, and I was a dumbass for falling for it.
>>
>>13728845
The romance isn't great, but IMO Yushiro and Miharu definitely have a Chirico and Fyana thing going on. There's nothing as romantic as the walk through the desert in Sunsa, though, thats true.
